São Bento Monastery was built in 1599 as the second Benedictine monastery in Brazil. It was destroyed when the Dutch colonizers arrived in Pernambuco around 1632, but was then reconstructed and opened again in 1640. It is one of the masterpieces of the baroque style in Olinda, and both the monastery and adjacent church are UNESCO World Heritage sites. In the interior you will find many works of art like the beautiful paintings that represent the life of Saint Benedict as well as the impressive old furnishings of the 17th century.
